2060 Series Spring & Companion Hinge

The door size & weight, type of hinge, type of latch, type of smoke seal, door perimeter gaps and air pressure within a building all contribute to the closing action of a door. The specification should be considered as an entire solution and not as individual component parts.

Use spring hinges on internal doors only. Do not specify Relcross spring hinges to control external or perimeter doors.We always recommend using a minimum of three hinges on any door. Occasionally it may be possible to substitute one or two spring hinges with a corresponding number of companion hinges (i.e. un-sprung hinges) of the same size to reduce the overall cost.

Companion hinges are effectively spring hinges with the spring and ratchet mechanism removed.

Important Note. We do not offer the 2060R hinges as an alternative to conventional door closing devices per se.We recommend, wherever possible, using devices offering door control throughout the opening and closing cycles, including a back-check feature as standard.
